Yesterday I had a fun day at a Children’s Party Event in Dorridge, (near Solihull). 'Get The Party Started' was an event organised by Melanie Bramich.
Melanie like many mums feels that it is really important to meet face to face with the people that you are entrusting your child’s birthday party to.
So, yesterday’s event at Dorridge Village Hall was fantastic as parents were able to come and find out about everything party.
Since setting up AllSensesArt back in 2007 I have provided the entertainment at lots of unusual and interesting children’s craft parties for all ages of children and in so many lovely venues.
I chose to specialise in the felt-making early on as it is such an unusual and sensory process. We start with just fluffy sheep’s wool fibres and using soap and water almost anything can be made!
I have been making hand-made felt now for 15 years so I have lots of experience and have been able to devise some very cool craft ideas for birthday parties.
I am absolutely in love with the process of felt-making as it is so exciting to see how much fun people of all ages have. Felting isn’t just for children it’s a fantastic craft party activity that suits all ages.
At AllSensesArt I offer several children’s party options.
- Felted Teddy Bear Coats
- Felted Cushions and Pictures
- Felted Bags
- Magic Ball Mini-Beasts and Jewellery
- Felted Flower Brooches
Everyone loves their teddy so why not make your own felted teddy coat.
Felted cushions are so snuggly and of course with with wool fibres in so many colours children can make their own felted cushion to perfectly compliment their bedroom. It will be treasured!
"We just wanted to say a huge Thank You for the fabulous workshop that you carried out for Laura's party yesterday. All the girls had a wonderful time and I had some lovely texts from the mums last night thanking me and saying how the girls were still buzzing and hadn't stopped talking about it all evening. They are all so proud of their cushions and the parents were amazed to see what they had produced. We look forward to seeing you again which I am sure we will!"

A birthday party making felted bags and purses is brilliant. A party bag and gift made all in one!
For younger children my felted mini-beasts party is still the biggest hit.
"Kirsty came to do felt-making mini-beasts for my daughters 6th Birthday. It was a fabulous party, the children were totally absorbed and very creative. It was a world apart from the usual ball pool parties! The children were absolutely delighted with their creations, which were all so different. A very special and memorable day, A big thank-you." S. Wilson, Hamstall Ridware, Staffordshire 2011
The great thing about this party is that you can either make lots of mini-beasts or make a mini-beast and then a necklace or bracelet too.
For 'Get The Party Started' I made some gorgeous multi-colored bracelets to sell, but I also offered children the chance to have a go at felting and make their own magic felted ball.
Here I am at 'Get The Party Started' (Solihull).
Ellie made a lovely felted ball she was definitely the type of girl who would love the creative parties that I provide.

I couldn't resist matching this young felter's nail polish with the same gorgeous wool colours. Here at AllSensesArt we must be doing something right!
For the party event in Dorridge, we had parents and children coming from all around the Solihull area including Knowle and Dorridge.
It was a really great chance to show people what felt-making is all about.
So many gorgeous colours of wool to choose from and using soap and water really gets people’s interest! I am really looking forward to providing more fun and creative parties to lots more birthday boys and girls in the Solihull area.
